Live Blog: June 9 – Final Practice Day & Registration PM

Tuesday, June 9 – 8:40 PM

We are going to wrap up blog coverage for today.  Thanks for following along for the final day of practice and angler check-in.  Tomorrow’s blog will begin at 4:45 AM, and the first flight of boats will blast off beginning at 5:30 AM.  Check back to our website in the morning to see the most up to date information from out on the water!

Tuesday, June 9 – 8:00 PM

Here is a glance at the weather forecast during competition hours tomorrow.  It looks like there may be a slight chance for storms around take off and then clear out by the early afternoon.  The additional cloud cover in the morning could make things a little interesting.  But one thing to watch will be the afternoon bite for the later boat numbers.  Conditions look like they will set up best after 12:00 PM for the ledge fish to really turn on.
